Despite their medium size, these have a powerful expression, reflecting their fierce determination.

About the Hanoverian Hound

Just by looking at them, you know that Hanoverian Hounds have a big appetite for work. These are well-proportioned, powerful dogs. The broad, deep chest is able to accommodate the big lungs needed to take part in long, tiring pursuits.

Hanoverian Hounds have a lightly wrinkled forehead and lively dark eyes, producing an oh-so-typical serious gaze. The coat is predominantly red, ranging from light fawn to dark brindle, even sometimes appearing almost black.
